I am an Information Technology Domain Network and Solutions Architect at a large utility company.
I am currently researching SD-WAN solutions. Is the network connection for an SD-WAN router the same as a network connection to a traditional router? They both employ an ethernet private line for access, is that correct?
Thank you for your help.

More information please!! Of course it's not the same type of solution, but if you're talking about infrastructure, yes it's the same, you just need a patch cable (copper or fiber) from your ISP router connected to your router's WAN IN port.Otherwise, if you're talking about capabilities, it's normal behavior of the whole network to become slower if your UTM server is not good enough and that depends on how big your current and future network need is, take note of that, it is the main concern that you should focus on.Personal advice for you; go with a hardware kind router, most of the time it is a better solution and cheaper one, maybe you just don't know yet about the correct one for you, please let me know if I was helpful.

IBM does not appear in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for SD-WAN as of the 12th September 2022.
One of my clients implemented Viptela which was later acquired by Cisco. They replaced about 30 MPLS circuits with multiple business broadband circuits, saved a lot of money, and increased speed and reliability.
According to Gartner's 2022 MQ report, the leaders are Fortinet, VMware, Cisco, HPE (Aruba), Versa, and Palo Alto.

Nubewell Networks has full fledged feature set.
Versa. Best of breed. Better security offering and now offers SASE as well.
I have done PoC with AT&T, VMware, Dell and SilverPeak -- I selected SilverPeak (which is now owned by HPE).
We are working with Silver Peak, Fortinet (FortiGate and FortiAnalayzer) and also tried few other vendors.
We think and knows, that’s Silver-Peak is the only End to End SD-WAN solution along with VMWare in the market.
FortiGate is a FW with SD-WAN features.
We are using fortigate with fortimanager and fortianalyzer. its a secure SDWAN solution and we are very satisfied with the solution.
